Hello there! I completed this build about a year ago today, and I never got around to posting about it so here it is!





This build contains the following:
- Goth3Designs Knight v2 Chassis w/Crystal
- Nano Biscotte v3
- rB/rB/W Tri-Cree
- Flickering Blue LED for crystal
- Accurate screws and other accessories

I'm really proud of this one. It was my hardest build yet, and I am very happy with the results. Here's a shot of the full chassis

Anyways, I hope you liked this saber and I hope you have a nice day. Thanks!

Welcome to the club :cheer:


Helpful hint: Clamp is on the wrong side for the TFA/TLJ variant ;)

Thanks! I have some improvements to do haha I need to change the clamp position and also sand/replace the glass eye so the brass is showing! I also want to get the graflex pommel cap but we’ll see about that one. Your chamber looks so great! The brass rods really sell the look.

Thanks, the brass accents really do make chambers pop. I also prime and sand the chassis so it has a more metallic look to it, and in this case I weathered it a bit.

The eye is easy, if you have a Drill with a 1/2" chuck, put the eye in it, spin it and use a 200ish grit sand paper till it's smooth brass.

That pommel cap doesn't look that great IMO. It's a different finish than the rest of the hilt and unless you do some mods will muffle the saber. Not too bad on an ESB/TFA/TLJ flex because the kobold ring covers so much of the pommel, but on ANH its ugly as sin. Personally I would just leave the sounds vents as is.
